For As Many Moments Allowed
By: James Revels III
I’m beginning to understand,
About the thing which people argue is God or not,
Secular or religious,
Real or Illusion.
I gaze upon the sunlight of each day;
The lunar light of each night;
The friends I’ve met;
The enemies I’ve never made;
Everything I own,
And I realized that all of the previous,
Are not God, but holier than that concept,
Not religious, but worthy of the greatest praise,
Not illusion, but realer than any word from man’s mouth.
It is Life and all its beauty,
Which I shall behold, praise, and appreciate for as many moments as I am allowed.
